License plate plan in works?

Specially designed license plates with a “significant feature” of the Sierra Nevada region may soon be seen around California. Revenue from the special-interest plates would go to the newly formed Sierra Conservancy.

If the conservancy can garner enough support to pass bill AB84 through the Legislature, the plates could be issued. If not, the state would have to receive 7,500 applications for plates before they could be issued.

The Nevada City City Council unanimously passed a resolution Monday evening in support of the bill, which was introduced on Jan. 5 by representatives Tim Leslie and John Laird, the authors of the Sierra Conservancy bill.
